How to use the BMW LED Angel Eyes Shopping Guide

Shopping for LED halo rings for your BMW may seem like a daunting challenge because there are so many options to choose from, but it’s really not as hard as you may think. As long as you know the model and the year of your BMW, shopping for angel eyes is actually pretty easy. If you thought otherwise, you’re just scaring yourself for absolutely no reason at all. We have a handy BMW LED Angel Eyes Guide to assist you in the process.

When you browse the LED angel eyes compatibility list, it may seem like there are a lot of choices, but all you need to do is narrow it down according to your model and year and you are pretty much good to go. Some vehicles only have one option available so you won’t have to sit around wondering if you should buy the ring marker bulbs or the halo rings because the decision has already been made for you.

If you follow the chart correctly, you won’t have to worry around buying the wrong LED bulbs for your BMW and have to go through the hassle of exchanging them. To find the appropriate LED ring marker bulbs or LED halo rings, simply start at the left most column and pick which model BMW you own. Go to the model year that applies to your BMW, and see if there is a link option for either the LED ring marker bulbs or the LED halo rings. Just keep in mind that your BMW has to have OEM xenon adaptive headlights in order to be compatible with the ring marker bulbs.

For example:
Say you have a 2009 E92 3 Series M3 and you wanted to upgrade to some new angel eyes.

Start at the left most column and find the model category that corresponds with your vehicle. In this case, it would be the "E92/E93 3 Series M3 with OEM xenon adaptive headlights." If the year of your vehicle is between the years listed, proceed forward. The angel eye upgrade for this vehicle is between 2008-2012. Since we have a 2009 M3, it fits in the compatible years. You can see that there are both H8 LED Ring Marker Bulbs and LED Halo Rings.

For Ring Marker Bulbs, we have three options available. Simply choose the one you prefer, since the sizing will be compatible if you’ve followed the chart correctly. If you prefer a more premium product, the same concept applies for the LED Halo Rings. There’s even RGB Halo Rings in the available options if you prefer something more flashy, or you could always stick to the xenon white version as well.

Another example:
If you have a 2001 E39 5 Series with adaptive headlights and you’re bored of your stock lights and want to give your car the look that the newer models have, you just need to follow the chart again.

The left most column has the vehicle listed as "E39 5 Series Sedan with OEM xenon adaptive headlights" and the years compatible between 2001-2003. We are in luck here because our car is a 2001 model and barely made the cut off list for both options of ring marker bulbs and LED halo rings.

For the ring marker bulbs, you can either choose the extremely bright 15W High Power LED BMW Angel Eyes or the 5W High Power LED Angel Eyes. For the LED Halo Rings, you can stick with the traditional xenon white kit or choose a little different version with the LED switchback halo rings. If you’re feeling extremely daring, there’s also the multi-color RGB LED halo rings option.

If your vehicle model and year is missing a listing for Ring Marker Bulbs, LED Halo Rings, or both, it means that there’s no product available for the car at the year range you’re looking for.

With all this information available and the chart to guide you to picking the compatible halo ring upgrade, it’s all personal preference as to which LED lighting you want to have on your BMW as angel eyes. You can’t go wrong with either ring marker bulbs or LED halo rings, so picking which one you prefer is probably the toughest decision you have. You don’t have to fret about possibly purchasing the wrong fitment, because if you followed the chart, the fitment would be correct and the only tough choice involved is if you prefer LED halo rings or ring marker bulbs for your BMW.

Enjoy your new BMW Angel Eyes because whatever choice you make as your halo rings is definitely going to be a great choice either way.

How to Install an Adapter for a HID Conversion Kit

Today, we tried to install an H11 HID Conversion Kit and we encountered an issue of it not lighting up, but we quickly found a solution that fixes this. The most common issue that causes the HID to not work is that it doesn’t get power. We all know that we have to check the polarities, but what if the HID doesn’t even receive power? Before you can even check the polarity, you have to make sure that the connector and the adapter are snapped in together properly. What we encountered here is actually a textbook issue because the adapter wasn’t completely snapped in; therefore it doesn’t even receive power.

1.) One of the reasons why it sometimes doesn’t completely snap in when you try to connect the adapter to the connector is that the stock wire is hidden all the way underneath, making it difficult to get a firm grip on both parts to snap the connector.

How to Upgrade Mercedes W204 C-Class Stock Fog Lamps to the OEM LED Daytime Running Lights

This guide is for 2008-2010 Mercedes Benz W204 C Class to convert the stock sport front bumper’s halogen fog lights to the 2011-up LCI style LED daytime running lights. This installation would give your car that nice, crisp and signature LED daytime running lights look that the new Mercedes Benz C-class vehicles are famous for. However for this installation, please keep in mind that you have to remove the front bumper to perform this installation, and there is also some retrofit modification involved where you’d have to cut the stock bumper in order to fit the new LED daytime running lights. Because of this, we highly recommend professional installation.

1. There are three screws at the corners of the stock fog lamp that you’ll need to remove in order to take out the stock fog lamp bezel. After you do this, you can remove the front bumper.

2. You’ll need to cut out the original fog lamp bed with stock fog lamp outline in order to proceed. Use a cutting tool to cut around the edges of the opening.
